Christiansen v. Omnicom Group, Inc., 16-748

In an action against plaintiff's former employer brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. section 200e et seq., alleging that he was subjected to various forms of workplace discrimination due to his failure to conform to gender stereotypes, the district court's dismissal pursuant to Simonton v. Runyon, 232 F.3d 33 (2d Cir. 2000) is reversed where the complaint plausibly alleges a gender stereotyping claim cognizable under the Supreme Court's decision in Price Waterhouse v. Hopkins, 490 U.S. 228 (1989).
